was an 895 sq. km. Princely state ruled by the Parmars, descendants of the great
King Vikramaditya of Ujjain. The Parmars made Chandravati their capital
following the Arab conquest of 1200 AD. After the battle against Allauddin
Khilji, they migrated to Tarsang. From there they moved to Danta three hundred
and eighty years ago. Danta has a glorious past - of great kings, heroic
warriors and gods who watched over them and sometimes stepped down onto earth to
change the course of history. The care of the people of Danta is said to have
been entrusted to the Parmars by Goddess Ambaji herself. Navratri Puja is
performed by the Maharana of Danta in the famous temple at Ambaji every year .
